They shouldn't get in each other's way.  It's designed to have them all
running replicators (otherwise if you lose your mogilefsd doing replicate,
you have a single point of failure!).

There might be a bug, but I've never seen it, and every installation I've
seen has multiple mogilefsd, all doing replicate.
